The Addams Family
The Addams Family is a fictional household created by cartoonist Charles Addams.
The Addams Family is a fictional household created by American cartoonist Charles Addams. The Addams Family characters have traditionally included Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Grandmama, Wednesday, Pugsley and Thing.
The Addamses are a satirical inversion of the ideal 20th century American family: an eccentric wealthy aristocratic clan who delight in the macabre and are seemingly unaware or don’t care that other people find them bizarre or frightening. They originally appeared as an unrelated group of 150 single-panel cartoons, about half of which were originally published in The New Yorker between their debut in 1938, and Addams’ death in 1988. They have since been adapted to other media, including television series (both live and animated), films, video games and a musical.
